This photo shows some of the similarities between Corona and Lübeck, a Baltic Sea port in Germany. Germany’s Baltic Sea coast is a leading candidate for where a real-world Kingdom of Corona might have been located. (Read more here.)

Looking at these screenshots next to each other, a couple of things stick out that I did not register during the movie.
(1) The first buildings in the village were the buildings adjacent to the quay (screenshot 2), and the first boats that appear were small ones, not the big seafaring vessels that arrived later (screenshot 4). This suggests to me that the current village grew over the centuries from a fishing village into a small but seemingly important port.
(2) The town preceded the castle, meaning the town didn’t emerge as an offshoot of the castle, but more likely the opposite: The castle was the product of someone wealthy or powerful in the town. It’s more organic that way. Production designer Doug Rogers said that they didn’t want it to be “this oppresive monarchy on the hill that these people could never attain, or even feel a part of.”
